in the wake of this, of course, very frightening event that happened on christmas day in the united states when there was a failed bomb attack. people's nerves are very much on edge. there is also a dark humor that permeates some sectors of society. we've heard of different people making jokes in different airports and it is not a joking matter right now. so we know that these people may have been drinking. they've been arrested. >> excuse me for just a second. sky news is interviewing live. they're the fox news equivalent for london. listen. >> did they, from your viewpoint, make their way directly to that passenger? >> in an instant. it happened straight away. they were very efficient and effective in their arrest. >> what reaction from him when he was made aware of what was happening to him? >> he seemed pretty calm. there was no shouting, no screaming. i think he sort of gave in straight away. >> reporter: you say two arrests were made. did you see the second person being taken from the aircraft? >> i didn't see the second person. i heard that through some other passengers on board. >>
presently across the united states. president barack obama will meet with the top labor leaders on monday over his proposal to tax health care plans. this is" fo "washington journalr january 9. here is robert barnes this morning in "the washington post." a pending decision on whether restrictions on corporate and labor unions spent on political campaigns violates the first amendment. this arose from a question about whether conservative groups support of a documentary movie of hillary clinton + presidential pursuit violated the mccain-falling goeingold ac. justices said they would consider the larger question of whether it is constitutional to ban corporations and labour unions from drawing funds from the general treasuries to support or oppose candidates. many legal experts say they expect the court use its imminent% ruling in the case of citizens united purses the federal electorate commission for money paid by corporations, unions, or advocacy organizations. the case centers on whether spending restrictions apply to "hillary: the movie." the 2010 elections will bring the for large-scal

-span. if you were president of the united states would it be on c-span do you agree? >> he made the prop if you make a promise like that you have to keep. there are bigger promises he has not kept. the most important of which he would have this open process. there would be a bipartisan effort. new style of politics in washington. and the style he has brought has been far more of the backroom, if you will, bribery type of arrangement that we've seen in many, many years. >> greta: why? why has he made those promises about having it open and everybody have a seat at the table for instance? why since you don't think he has kept those promises didn't he or hasn't he? >> i can't guess to his motivation other than the fact has been unsuccessful in his first year. has not been able to accomplish virtually anything. as a result he's pinning all of his hopes on seeing something happen with health care what has occurred of course he's created a monster. this health care bill this being fashioned by the two houses doesn't make any sense and it ought to be jammed and they ought to start over again. but he's

and cannot fly into the united states. since the detroit attack, the white house has ordered a review. sources say the national counterterrorism center has now sent hundreds of new names to the f.b.i. and the f.b.i. has upgraded hundreds of names from the master watch list to the selectee category. but for intelligence officials, it's a daunting challenge, trying to identify the true terrorists among a mass of suspects. >> there isn't a magic formula or a magic google program that will spew out a defined list of bad people. there has to be a human component here, and there's judgment at play and that judgment can be faulty. and we saw that in this recent case of abdulmutallab. >> reporter: now, officials say no watch list is perfect, but as a first line of defense, it has to be better than it was on christmas day. katie? >> couric: bob orr in washington. thanks, bob. turning to the economy now, the experts had been hoping, even expecting, that the latest jobs report today would show at least some improvement. but it didn't. the labor department said the unemployment rate held at 10% i

and this attack, he said, is also a message to the united states for the cia and to the jordanian intelligence that you can't buy somebody off. you can't buy them away from their fate, because, of course, the jordanian intelligence and the cia thought he was an operative for them. he turned out to have been a double agent, fred dreek kaw. >> what are the implications? video for the cia, for jordanian intelligence agencies, et cetera? >> reporter: we've been talking here with an analyst very familiar with security operations in jordan and throughout the region, and from his perspective, this is going to mean a real close, hard look at all agents, any country is running in that reason, and there are lots of different countries who are running agents in and around the pakistan/afghan border trying to get on, to the al qaeda leaders. everyone will have to look at these spies they're running and figure out if they can trust them. the bottom line here is, trying to track down al qaeda leaders, the analysis has to be, this is going to cause a setback. it's going to take time to reanalyze all of those

and whether they can get into the united states? that seems kind of obvious to me. number two, i was surprised that there is no single database that tracks all specific high level threats against the united states. so on those levels it seems there was some shocking information today and, of course, brennan saying he didn't or the whole system, whole intelligence network didn't understand how sophisticated al-qaeda and the arabian peninsula was, a little bit of a shock. i can understand, it's a small group of people, about 100, 200 people and in a very poor country, the poorest country in the middle east and the thought was just not that sophisticated. again, a real wake-up call. but to me, the big surprise is some of the things that we had assumed were being done by our government had not been done. >> nina, when you have lee hamilton, a prominent democrat who is co-chair of the 9-11 commission saying, hey, listen, we knew al-qaeda in yemen was a problem a long time ago. fairly damning. >> i think it is. when john brennan today, he said we thought the threat was aspirational. in other words,

trials here in the united states. >> he wants us to believe that it's his position that anybody who attacks us here in the united states shouldn't be tried in a civilian court. so says the guy that after the first world trade center bombing in 1993, applauded the conviction of four of the planners. quote -- nearly an hour years later, the master mind of that attack was sentenced. straight from "the new york times" that day -- okay, if you want to give him further benefit of the doubt, those trials were pre-9/11. maybe after that, he decided that any terrorist wo attacks here ought to be tried in civilian courts. has nothing to do with him trying to make political hay out of this. then what accounts to his response to the federal court conviction of the coconspirator in 2006. >> it shows we have a legal system that we follow it, we respect it and it's what's missing in a lot of the parts of the world breeding terrorism. it says something remarkable at us. >> the once promising political career of the new york city mayor who has national aspirations because of his supposed credibility

system will be approved by the united states supreme court. no major cases have been prosecuted in a military tribunal since world war ii. we know that if he goes into the united states district court he is going to come out with a life sentence without parole and that will be the end of it. i think that's a safe and appropriate bet for the government to say. >> commander lippold, do you think, though, he should be handled by the military? >> absolutely. i mean, that argument that jeffrey just made sounds real good, but the reality of it is, this administration has recognized the military commission system is a proper venue. they're going to take the principal conspirator for the attack on uss cole and try him via the military commission's process. i doubt the administration would do that especially after the president met with those families in february and looked them in the eye and said they would see justice served. put the principal conspirator through a process they didn't believe would work and, in fact, render the verdict that we need to see. >> commander, do you think i
said, was his answer to the united states to jordanian intelligence. also, we can see in this videotape that is sitting next to the current head of the pakistani taliban, and he said this attack was in part revenge for the u.s. in a drone attack last year killing the pakistani taliban leader at that time. so a multiple message here and another part of the message that's very, very clear is just how important the taliban have come in these sort of al qaeda-type operations here, taking this arab doctor and the taliban essentially being the front group, if you will, perpetrating what is essentially a very much al qaeda-type attack. fredricka? >> and so how might this video, you know, impact cia, jordanian intelligence gathering, sharing plans this point forward? >> you know, as much as what this doctor comes out and says he was a double act, went over to the taliban, according to an analyst here very familiar with operations in the middle east he said quite simply the united states, jordan intelligence, cia and all of the other intelligence agencies working to catch osama bin laden and the

. the ones who attack us here in the united states. >> again, let's give rudy giuliani the benefit of the doubt here. he wants us to believe it's his position that anybody who attacks us here in the united states shouldn't be tried in a civilian court. so says the guy who after the first world trade center bombing in 1993 applauded the federal court convictions of four of the planners. straight from "the new york times" that day, "it should show that our legal system is the most mature legal system in the history of the world, that it works well, that that is the place to seek vindication if you feel your rights have been violated." nearly four years later the mastermind of that attack was sentenced. again, straight from "the new york times" that day. response to the sentence came quickly from city and federal officials. mayor rudolph w. giuliani said the sentencing sends a clear message to the world, the united states will vigorously prosecute and punish those who murder and maim the innocent. okay. if you want to give him even further benefit of doubt, those trials were both pre-
countries matters to the american people into our nation's security and prosperity. the united states seeks a safer, more prosperous, more democratic and more equitable world. we cannot reach that goal when one-third of humankind live in conditions that offer them little chance of building better lives for themselves or their children. we cannot stop terrorism or defeat the ideologies of violent extremism when hundreds of millions of young people see a future with their jobs, no hope, and no way ever to catch up to the developed world. we cannot build a stable, global economy with hundreds -- when hundreds of millions of workers and families find themselves on the wrong side of globalization, cut off from markets and out of reach of modern technologies. we cannot rely on regional partners to help us stop conflicts and counter global criminal networks when those countries are struggling to stabilize and secure their own societies. and we cannot advance democracy and human rights when hunger and poverty threaten to undermine the good governance and rule on what needed to make those rights rea
for his legacy and how people remember him. >> right. imagine being president of the united states, whether you're george bush or barack obama that something in the country could happen that completely changes your presidency overnight. that happened to george bush on 9/11 and he spent 11 years trying to avoid it happening again. barack obama came to office with the idea he didn't want his presidency to be consumed by prism. he thought it was important but not the only priority. health care, and economy, and other issues that -- like education he wanted to focus on. you haven't seen him spending time this year talking in the way george bush did and suddenly you have got a guy with explosives in his clothing on an airplane on northwest airlines on christmas day. what does he have to do, he suddenly finds himself in a position that dush did, answering questions, what went wrong. who is responsible and how do we assess blame? gwen: you wrong a long, long piece. >> it reads fast. gwen: yes. one of the characters who was a running theme throughout the piece in the administration and the
of the united states. so this guy, richard reid, certainly changed his tune from that subdued man that we first saw. not to say that abdulmutallab will did the same thing, but i got to say, it would not be surprising. >> and some controversy about whether there should have been handled in a criminal court versus a military tribunal. what was the right decision? >> the critics have been saying that he's a terrorist and he should not be getting a lawyer who will tell help that you have a right to remain silent. but he was picked up here on u.s. soil. i think this is getting a little bit confuseded with the much more controversial issue to bring those 9/11 plotters, the top plotters in the attack on the united states, the world trade center and the pentagon into the united states. they've been held down at guantanamo bay, they've baby going through these military tribunals, the obama administration has decided that khalid shaikh mohammed, the master minld, should instead be brought here into this country and get a regular trial. that's a very different decision than just putting someone into a fed
